Who can fix my computer?

If your computer needs repairs, hire a technician who has experience with your computer’s model and brand. Ideally, the pro you choose should have certifications, training and/or a degree in a related field. 

Look for top-rated, qualified computer repair services in your area on Thumbtack.

Is it worth replacing the motherboard on a laptop?

If your laptop’s motherboard was damaged by physical impact, liquid, heat or electrical damage, you may need to replace it or buy a new computer. You should consult computer repair experts near you to determine if replacing your laptop’s motherboard is worth the cost. Compare the price quotes you receive with new laptop prices, and decide which option is the most cost-effective.

What should I do before sending a computer in for repairs?

Before you send your computer to a technician to fix it, take the following precautions:

  • Make sure you hire a reputable, top-rated professional to handle the repairs. Look at past photos of work they’ve completed and read their customer reviews on Thumbtack.
  • Back-up your data. To ensure you don’t lose the data on your computer, back-up your files to an external hard drive. 
  • Ensure you have access to important information. If you need to access certain files or information from your computer, make sure you can access that information through a cloud storage system or external drive. 
  • Erase sensitive information. If you have files (documents, photos, etc.) that contain sensitive information about your finances, accounts, passwords, etc., delete them before you bring your computer to a repair shop. 
  • Log out of your accounts. Make sure you’re logged out of your bank, social media and other accounts.

Is it cheaper to replace a hard drive or buy a new computer?

Buying a new hard drive is almost always cheaper than buying a new computer. If you suspect you need to upgrade or replace your hard drive, ask a computer technician to diagnose your device (and request a cost estimate if the culprit is indeed the hard drive).

Is it worth fixing a computer?

It depends. If the damage is severe, you might be better off buying a new computer than spending hundreds (or thousands) of dollars on repairs. Always get price quotes from a few computer repair services near you, and compare those estimates to desktop and laptop prices. If it's cheaper to fix your computer,  consider doing so. But if it's cheaper to buy a new device, that's probably your best option.

Should I repair or replace my computer?

To determine if you should replace or repair your computer, consider the following:

  • Has your warranty expired?
  • Is your computer old and out of date?
  • Is the cost to fix your computer 50% or more of the cost of replacing it?
  • Before it broke, was your computer working slowly and inefficiently?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, it’s probably time to replace your computer. When in doubt, consult a technician for their expert opinion.

How many years does a laptop last?

Depending on its quality, age, condition and maintenance, a laptop may last only a few years or up to seven years. Of course, your laptop may last longer or shorter depending on how well you take care of it. If you think your laptop needs repairs, don’t procrastinate — hire a technician to look at it before the damage becomes irreparable.

Nick was very prompt with a quote for my desktop repair. I have some health problems that make it difficult for me to travel and Nick picked the computer up at my home. I would not hesitate in using Aquilis Computers for all of my needs.

Nick from Aquilis Computers did a fantastic job in responding to our PC problem, working around our schedule in doing the home diagnosis and verifying that everything was working properly at home after repairs were completed. His availability after usual business hours was very helpful and his explanation of repair options and best approaches was very appreciated. I highly recommend him for your computer needs.

The hard drive on my computer went kaput on a Saturday night. Sunday morning I did a google search on computer repair people and Aquilis - North Hills/Pittsburgh popped up. I typed my problem in and within 15 minutes I got a reply and they said that they would come out to the house that day. I thought that was a typo but they were dead serious. I scheduled the appointment and Nick showed up right on time. He diagnosed the problem and took my computer with him to work on it in the shop. One week later, he brought the computer back to me and set it up in my home. It is better than it ever was. He took the time to set up all my programs and explain to me what he repaired and how to navigate some of the new programs he installed. If you are going to have to go through the agony of a hard drive crash, Nick is definitely the person that you want to call to ease your pain. He is extremely knowledgeable and his prices are very straightforward and more than fair - and - if you are a computer idiot like me, he is very patient! Don't hesitate to call these people for any and all of your computer needs!

Matt was excellent. Very communicative of the parts of my desktop pc which was not working and needs replacements. He knows what needs to be done to have my desktop pc back up and running again. I would recommend him for computer repair.

I have no other word to describe my experience with Harry Stein except AMAZING. I was impressed with him after our first conversation and could tell that he was not only knowledgeable but very capable in his field. He went above and beyond what I had anticipated would be needed to get my laptop back up to speed. He spent a great deal of time looking, checking finding a solution and repairing then going deeper into the issue to the nuts and bolts and cleaning everything. While he was doing all of this he was mentoring me on the 'why's' of what he was doing and willing to answer all of my questions. He was also very kind. I appreciate everything he has done for my laptop and if I ever have a computer issue again, I know he will gladly be there for me. I highly recommend him for any computer issue you may have. He actually deserves 10 stars !!!!!

The owner and staff at Aquilis were friendly, helpful and quick to respond to my initial contact/questions as well as my need to get my laptop back up and running promptly. Their location was super-convenient to my workplace, and although they would have come to my home or office, I appreciated the option of being able to drop off and pick up my computer at my convenience (within their office hours, which were also quite convenient). I was THRILLED when I got the call, just a day and a half after dropping off my laptop, that they were able to make the needed repair and have things running smoothly again for just $2.00 over the Diagnostic fee of $24!!! Best repair/service experience I have had in a L-O-N-G time!!! Great job, guys! I will highly recommend you to everyone I know! :)
